Clarets move for Kiraly

30 May 2007 12:03
Burnley boss Steve Cotterill has made his first signing of the summer after snapping up free agent goalkeeper Gabor Kiraly. The Hungary international was available on a free transfer following his release by Crystal Palace earlier in the month and has joined the Clarets on a two-year contract. Burnley also have the option to keep the 31-year-old keeper for a third season. Kiraly joined Palace from German side Hertha Berlin three years ago, but struggled to hold down a first-team place following Peter Taylor's appointment as manager last summer. He spent emergency loan spells in the Premier League with West Ham and Aston Villa last term. Kiraly has represented Hungary on 65 occasions and made 111 appearances for Palace.
